Gabby on fire for Breakers


CORINDI-RED Rock pulled out a very flat performance on Saturday and did just enough to make sure they grabbed all three points against the cellar-dwelling South Services.

Considering the Breakers had played two of the top teams in the competition during the week their performance was understandable.

It took a while before the Breakers found their usual flow in the midfield but once it came the result was never an issue.

If any football fans had some doubts about how good Gabby Dickinson is then they would have been blasted away on Saturday.

Dickinson capitalised on the good midfield work of Laura Hall beautifully to score all four goals for the Breakers.


THE Northern Storm finished their season on a strong note despite having five players double up from reserve grade but it wasn't enough to topple the finals-bound Woolgoolga who won 5-2.

The match was played at a furious pace with Woolgoolga often attacking through young guns Chloe Wighton and Jasmine Courtenay while the pace of Storm pair Elicia Webber and Liz Keen made many inroads.

Storm 'keeper Cassie Wakewood was being kept busy but she wasn't showing any signs of cracking under the pressure that she was under, particularly from Wildcats' gun Bub Hosking.

With scores level at half-time, the Storm were issuing a strong challenge to Woolgoolga but a couple of quick goals after the break put the result beyond doubt.


CONSIDERING the form they've shown over the past month it's fair to ask how good could the Tigers have been this year if they didn't have to have so many players doubling up each week?

The Tigers faced a tough challenge against the high-scoring Urunga team and would've almost have been happy with a 5-0 scoreline thanks to the efforts of their 'keeper Diana Walker.

It took nearly 35 minutes for Urunga to score and the opener was via Taylor Atkinson before Cassia McGlashan followed up not long after.

A larger focus on their passing game saw Breanna Martin score twice for Urunga after the interval before Rachel Freeman scored the last late in the contest.


COFFS United took a huge step towards this year's grand final when they secured a top-two finish courtesy of their comfortable 4-1 win over Boambee.
